The chapel is non-denominational and is used every Thursday for a guided meditation among the staff called a ‘sit’. Families and visitors have held services in the chapel, including marriage ceremonies or scripture readings. We also host musical guests or singers occasionally, where everyone in the house, patients and visitors alike, are invited to come and listen.
The chapel is also home to a memorial wall where cards with each patient’s name, date and time of death are written on a card that is then decorated by the family and placed on the wall in memory of the patient. As the memorial wall fills, the cards are moved into a binder that holds all the past memorial cards. Family members and visitors often return to Rosedale Hospice to remember their person and view their memory card while soaking in the serenity of the chapel.
